Cannabis stocks and cannabis penny stocks have been flying ‘high’ this week on both the US and Canadian markets. Many major cannabis companies made big announcements this week, pushing up investors’ confidence in cannabis. Today, we’ll take a closer look at The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd (TSX:TGOD) and Aleafia Health Inc. (TSXV:ALEF).
